Previous analyses of NMMAPS data have used a hierarchical Bayes approach (e.
The use of Bayesian methods in multicity analyses was pioneered by the first investigators of NMMAPS (Dominici et al.
The NMMAPS analyses estimated a national mean increase of 0.
In a reanalysis of data from the NMMAPS (Katsouyanni and Samet 2009), the [O.
The only previous multi-city analyses of these three pollutants were conducted during reanalyses of NMMAPS (Dominici et al.
2009) of the association between ozone and short-term mortality in the NMMAPS cities, and the availability of the detailed estimates of infiltration rate distributions in representative U.
cities that were included in the NMMAPS study and were selected by Persily er al.
Key parameters and calculated results for 18 NMMAPS cities with published infiltration rate distributions (Persily et al.
Using Equation 4, we estimated average national ozone exposure coefficients for summer and winter, based on data for the 18 representative NMMAPS cities weighted for population, and found that the national average exposure coefficient was larger in the summer (2.
2008) used April--October data from 60 NMMAPS cities during 1987-2000 to examine how temperature influences the ozone mortality association in the eastern region of the United States.
2009) examined other factors that might influence ozone mortality coefficients among the NMMAPS cities (between-city effect modifiers).
